Duterte presents himself as the crusader that goes against media and other political heads calling them out as corrupt people or the elites that are the enemy of the masses and that he is the righteous one to the people. Yet the issue of populism is not how this method is used, but how it’s used for. Political ideals that are righteously wrong that are used to make the population believe or perceive as their right, twisting the true intention of these politicians to make the populous believe that they are on their side. Professor in School of Public and International Affairs Cas Mudde would answer on populism being a political issue, “Yes, populism is an important feature of contemporary politics, but not all anti-establishment politics is populism and populist parties are not just about populism.
One his theories, stated in his book called Leviathan said that people are not able rule themselves because of how selfish mankind is and they need to be ruled by an iron fist. His political theory was that was also stated in Leviathan was that we should respect government authority under all circumstances to avoid violence. Hobbes was scared of the outcome of the social contract which meant people could get rid of the government if they were unhappy with what they were getting. In order to make well with the social contract he states in Leviathan that people should be completely obedient to the government. His reasoning was that if there was no government, there would be chaos.
Kennedy aimed to get at most in his speech was the idea of unity; in writing “The Mindless Menace of Violence”, RFK’s audience movement was to take American’s away from the idea that differences were faults, and that deviating from the “ideal race” was dangerous and to be punished. By using 1st person, 1st person plural, and 2nd person, he creates a sense of “us” rather than a sense of “them”. In paragraph one, he uses both 2nd person and 1st person plural in one sentence, “I have saved this one opportunity to speak briefly to you about this mindless menace of violence in America which again stains our land and every one of our lives.” By beginning with 2nd person, RFK separates himself from the American public, establishing himself as the one to deliver the wake up call for change, and then reconnects himself to the audience by switching to 1st person plural and showing that senseless violence must be addressed by all Americans to form any real change. Paragraph 11 also houses a significant change in point of view: “When you teach a man to hate and fear his brother, when you teach that he is a lesser man because of his color or his beliefs or the policies he pursues[.]”. Kennedy uses “you” to represent American society; particularly those who promote inequality and prejudice.
He took off power from the church, reduced the influence of the army, gave Catalonia its own parliament, and applied reforms in the education. Still his supporters from the working class saw Azaña as a weak character, they hoped for more severe reforms, they saw Azaña´s actions as too middle of the road. Now that the right saw the government as a threat, Azaña having lost support from the right also lost support from the left who deemed him for his betrayal. The extreme left organized strikes and riots in order to destabilize Azaña´s government, and when they achieved it the right was ready to take control. Even though many historians believe that the reforms were too weak and that more severe reforms would have kept Azaña in power, I agree with Paul
I agree with many of Paine’s arguments such as the problems with a monarchical government and America’s potential to obtain independence. I feel as if Paine’s argument pertaining to the need for a just government to be the most compelling. The fact that humans are not perfect is the reason why we have to have order and a commonwealth. In conclusion, Common Sense was written by Thomas Paine to reason with the citizens of America, to persuade them to fight for independence from the British government. It began a popular yearning for independence that quickly swept the nation.
He writes, “society is produced by our wants, and government by our wickedness; the In Thomas Paine’s book, Common Sense, Paine is trying to argue for American independence from the British Empire. He starts with general reflections of the British parliament then turns to the specific situation the colonies have found themselves in. The first page of this Common Sense is attempting to open the colonists eyes to the suffering and pain the British parliament is causing, and trying to anger them into wanting their independence. Paine makes a point about distinguishing between government and society. former promotes our happiness positively by uniting our affections the latter negatively be retraining our vices.
This excerpt is giving a sturdy explanation on the topic of tyranny,and how it gave us a clarification on how tyranny is being stopped by overpowering the king.Critics also argued that the king or queen could create laws that applied to only some people and not others, and that unelected officials could make decisions that negatively affected citizens.The people were exhausted and started to realize that they wanted to overthrow the king themselves. Critics of the monarch read and discussed what tyranny meant in order to argue for their notion of the rule of law. Two of the most important people who wrote about tyranny were the ancient Greek philosophers, Plato and Aristotle. At the time of the American Revolution, critics of tyranny discussed and circulated many of Plato and Aristotle’s writings to explain their opposition to tyranny,and how Aristotle had a better view on how the government should ran, the founding fathers took a very good attraction towards the idea of having the rule of law that Aristotle
To conclude his speech, the President mentions self-guilt on the part of the country on how they had not displayed the “sense of business responsibility” that they should have, a rhetorical strategy that approximates the audience to the government. His final sentence is an allusion to his inaugural address, another point in which JFK creates an extra layer of attachment to his listener. The previously mentioned ‘alternate reality’ is used once again but primarily for pathos. He mentions the possibilities of the way that science could be advancing efficiency,“In short, at a time where we could be exploring how more efficiency (...) could be obtained,” he proposes and
Historian, Henry David Thoreau, in his essay, Civil Disobedience, exploits the influence that corrupt government has on Americans. Thoreau’s purpose is to point out the government’s flaws. He adopts a defiant tone in order to expose the wrongs of the government to the American people. Thoreau begins his essay by identifying statements he believes in such as, "That government is best which governs least,” and "That government is best which governs not at all.” He appeals to resentful emotions by stating, “Witness the present Mexican war, the work of comparatively a few individuals using the standing government as their tool; for, in the outset, the people would not have consented to this measure.” He writes about his resentment in order to
Around the 1960s, the Liberals were showing that they associated dignity was self-deficiency by 1972 the Liberals define dignity as freedom. The policy of entitlement liberalism had many consequences because of the reaction against this philosophy. There was a growing political interest and attacking the AFDC because of the conservative opinions. Governor Reagan and Senator Herman wanted to improve the efficient mass of the word incentive program because of their response. Still by the 1970s there was a still division between the deserving and undeserving poor.
